Youth Leadership Program


The Executive Board met in March and decided that with the health and well-being of our youth in mind, the 2020 Youth Leadership Program, June 18-26, will be canceled. The Youth Leadership Program is our "crown jewel" program and, while disappointing, the best interest of our youth and counselors must come first.

The FBI National Academy Associates, Inc. (FBINAA) hosts a week long training event for high school students at the FBI Academy every summer called the Youth Leadership Program (YLP). To be qualified for this program you must:

  • Be 14, 15, or 16 years old at the start date of the program.


  • Demonstrate high academic standards and good citizenship

Individuals interested in attending the Youth Leadership Program (YLP) need to contact their local Chapter or YLP Coordinator for further information.

For general information, please contact Susan Naragon at
